Packers | Ryan takes aim at Sander's job

Todd Rosiak, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports Green Bay Packers P Jon Ryan is taking aim at earning the team's punter job. To do so, he'll have to beat out incumbent P B.J. Sander. Although he has no previous NFL experience, the 6-foot, 202-pound Ryan did post impressive numbers in the CFL. He averaged a league-record 50.6 gross yards per punt last season for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, with a long of 82. In 2004, his first in Winnipeg, he booted a 92-yarder. Ryan and Sander have had limited opportunities thus far to punt in a team setting but when they have, the results have been inconsistent. Once the Packers' voluntary workouts wrap up Wednesday, June 21, Ryan plans on returning to Canada to train. Consistency is his No. 1 goal.
